Default Axel Schulz vs Leon Spinks

Axel Schulz should've been linear heavyweight champion but was denied the decision against an old Foreman. If he won, he'd probably be listed as one of the weakest champions. So how do you think he'd do against Neon Leon?

I'd imagine this would end with Spinks winning a firm decision. Schulz is neither powerful enough (in the way Coetzee or Holmes were) to KO Spinks, nor is he busy enough (as LeDoux or even a shot Ali were) to outwork him.

This would be the conflict between the ultra-stiff boxer and the relentless unorthodox swarmer. Spinks was very mediocre, but at his best he had considerable energy and a very awkward style. If Botha can work his way to a clear decision, then Spinks (who wasn't bodgy and actually had some idea of defense) can win a wide decision.

As wacky as Leon Spinks career was, he still managed to beat at least three decent fighters in his short time at the top.Leon Spinks decisions Axel Schlulz by unanimous decison in 12.

Schulz would outbox the smaller Spinks with his jab and tight defensive guard. I think Schulz is a bit underrated
